Work wasnít terrible I just wasnít feeling good and my work station was cramped. I told my supervisor on my way out that I was feeling sick. They seriously need to clean up that backroom though if people are getting infections.

Work was horrible. Was grilled and yelled at by QA, even though I had no time to do what they ask. I will no doubt be subject to their abuse for months to come.

Last Friday was a coworker's last day. I'm going to miss her.
Even more the good coworkers are going to leave. Meanwhile I'm still stuck with bad ones.
Work also become worse. I don't like my new manager at all. Last Friday, I realized that it was not only me, but almost all coworkers don't like her as well.
I also hate the new changes the CEO brought to our division. Tomorrow, there will be a junior manager in our team. I know, she might be better than the other new manager, but it just too much. I'm not ready yet with these sudden changes.

Today started out really stressful and now it is kind of boring. I wish my supervisor would talk to me more. Sometimes we talk a lot on Skype and have a lot of good interactions throughout the day and other times it is radio silence. I don't know what she is thinking and I can't read her body language since she is in NY and I am in CA. I wonder if she is upset with me or just busy or what. I know she has a lot of stuff to do but I wish there were more consistent interactions.

The new guy kind of smells bad. I think itís just his breath but it was pretty bad today. Plus there was this really bad blood smell coming from somewhere. Work usually smells gross but those 2 smells combined plus me not feeling good really set me over the edge. I was glad to leave early for my doctors appointment.

I am just really tired of my boss.

1. He constantly keeps "pretending" that things are my fault. I am so sick of being the scape goat. Yesterday we had something to do at 12 pm. I asked him if it was ok to set it then because he had a notation that he had something at 12. He said that it was ok because the other thing wasn't happening. I said, ok. 12 pm comes and he isn't there. Doesn't matter that it was on the schedule and that I talked to him about it. He goes, well no one actually told me it was happening then. WHAT? Did you require an engraved letter?

2. I am so sick of him acting like a 2 year old. Every day I provide him with lists of things. His schedule is updated. The problem is, he just doesn't read them. He just plays around like a 2 year old all day long and if his stuff isn't done, he just blames me. If I am around to hear it or not.

3. We are on our busy period at work. Like the 3 year old boy he is... he takes up valuable work time on social engagements making sure that my work is not able to get done but for the fringes of the day. So my day is extended. I really don't care about social engagements when we are not on our busy period. But I think it is disgusting that his ridiculous social engagements come first. I cleared the schedule so he would have time and he filled it up with lunches and coffee dates.

4. He has all this work to do that he refuses to do. Because he refuses to do it, he calls me up daily looking for ME to do things to make it appear like he is doing something. Ask the parties if they want this. Oh you did... ask again. Oh they answered, ask them if they want this, ask them about that.

5. His staff are such morons. They will bring things to his attention, he will call me and I when I point out the problems with them, he gets annoyed, at me.

6. He has a new staff every two years or so. I am sure he does this so he can tell the new staff all his fun stories. But I know these stories are bull. Ok fine. But he gets so lost in their adoring adoration he forgets to come back to the real world of reality. And now, sometimes I am forced to do things to keep up with the fairy tales that he tells in his head. He acts like I am being difficult when I try to bring him back to reality but I have to do that because I LIVE IN REALITY.

7. I am so sick of him calling me with direction. He likes to dictate letters or things off the top of his head. Well I am not a stenographer. If you want me to do something WRITE IT DOWN. But he refuses. So then I am left to try to remember what he told me after he has had me on the phone for 25 minutes freely dictating and then changing his mind, changing it again. blah blah blah. I am not picking up the phone any longer.

8.. Because he likes to have fun and is considered a cool guy... everyone I work with ADORES Him... so I can't ever complain about him at work.

9. I am going to say it, he knows that I am better than him. When other people mess up he protects them. But he is always blaming me for things that aren't my fault. Because he knows I am always right. I am. I have been in this job for 16 years and was taught by someone who knows what they are doing. So I am usually right. But he straight up refuses to listen to me anymore and is desperate to find that I have erred. So desperate that now he has just decided that I don't have to err.. he can just tell people that his mistakes were mine.

Annoyed by Microsoft Word outline formatting
And Beige-mauve walls with BLUE carpet. No decor.
AND letters/emails with unnecessary apostrophes. No apostrophe is better than an unnecessary one, I say.
Annoyed by having to exercise patience when i feel like flipping a desk
Hating the life sucking office air breathed out by an air system that likely wafts legionnaires. And the window I love that also bakes my face and fries my computer and makes the air so dry that I gulp water constantly and feel like Iím shriveling in both mind and body as I squint at my little laptop screen, which should be a real monitor
Tired of the routine, the uncomfortable clothes, the phone ringing off the hook
Tired of pushy clients who whine about their stupid exes
WAaAaaAaaaAaaaaHhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhh! Cry me a freaking river!

Honestly not much to complain about today. I was working in the work station thatís way in the back so I couldnít hear much of anything. The women I was working with was nice. I had a Starbucks peppermint mocha iced latte with me. My anxiety was kind of bad but it wasnít work related. Today was ok.

My coworker was asking me how I was feeling the other day since I had to leave early the previous work day to go to the doctors. A second nosy coworker asked what was wrong and I told her. She said ďdid you get it from touching something back there?Ē Everyone in the store knows how nasty that place is. I hope things are fixed by Monday and based on how things went on Friday they should be.
